Funny how different people get different things out of riding. For me, it's the never ending focus of mind, evaluate, decide, & act, no time right now to worry about your boss, or your job, or anything else not directly related to keeping yourself alive. I also find practicing self discipline in controlling the desire to twist & hold, and the desire to express your anger at people who try to kill you with negligence to be rewarding in everyday life. I do appreciate the scenery, the feel of the wind, and the sensation of flying, at least until that mood comes on, and I knock back a couple of gears and lay down on the tank.....and I stay away from the track, not because it's a bad thing, but because I know that if I was on a track I'd just push harder & harder until I crashed!! On the street, I have reached the limit of speed & cornering that I feel comfortable with, and now I try for smoothness more so than that extra mph or extra degree off vertical.
